Happy 4th of July, NWCC! It’s been tough the last several months with stay at home orders, closure of Galveston beaches, and now state imposed facial coverings. Many of us are anxious to return to group riding, but unfortunately the current environment will not allow it. Please continue to ride solo, be safe, and stay healthy. Your Board has been scoping out some new, safe riding options to embrace those who recently purchased bicycles. While the COVID statistics have been increasing recently, we’ve been formulating a new “welcome to cycling and NWCC” program which should gain some interest. We were planning to launch this new program beginning July 1, but as you’ve heard, leaders have continued to encourage us to not only practice social distancing, but also wear face coverings. We are excited to meet new riders and teach them some basic riding skills. However, the timing is still not right. When we are able to begin, gatherings will be limited, we will practice social distancing, and we will introduce basic skills applicable to group riding. This will not replace the safety skills class conducted by the League of American Bicyclists as recommended by the MS150, but it will be a great place to start developing good riding skills.
